Checkup tomorrow after 1 year

12 years 1 week ago #2780 by yosemite05
Hello eveyone--My husband had a great check up today. The urologist said his bladder was clean. He'll have another scope in March and BCG treatment again in April (he goes 6 months this time between BCG treatments). Rosemary--I'm praying that you'll hear great news tomorrow. Take care.

I am really, really confused.  Maybe I will find out the answer to this tomorrow.

I remember the Doctor telling me that he was tipping me over to a 2.

But, what I read here about Stage and Grade is that T2 is muscle invasive. The pathology scared my doctor, but,  when I had the biopsy at UNC there was no cancer at all!!  The muscle was fine.  

I hope I can sort this out tomorrow.  

Sorry for the confusion.  It's me. :-[
BTW........

HOW DID JOHN DO TODAY?????

Sorry, Rosie

It's been a year since diagnosis.  I haven't had a TURB since March.  In May, when I went to UNC-Chapel Hill, I had a biopsy.

Tomorrow, I go for 3 month cystoscopy...last cystoscopy in August.

But, 1 year since diagnosis...... 9 BCG treatments....

My doc alwasys gave a dose of Mitomycin C after TURB's (2 TURBS)

Rosemary, Are you, or am I confused? You said you had a TURB this summer but also said you had not had a checkup in a year? Whatever it is, I hope your next one shows you to be clear of any growths. I think I remember in your stating in another post that you had mitocycin C after the last TURB. Hopefully that kep from a recurrence.

Wendy,

The original was a T1, and then, this summer with 2nd TURB and residual tumour, my doc sent it to two pathologists for 2nd opinions. I remember now, that he said that the confirmation on the path, bumped me up to a T2. I'm pretty sure he said this. And then, he made an appointment with BC specialist at UNC to determine if I could keep my bladder. The UNC Doc did a biopsy and it hadn't invaded muscle, so I got to keep my bladder (this time)

I'm going to get the full story tomorrow. I guess I'm ready to hear it.

Whoops! I was confusing Rosemary with Elaine. I knew one of you were having a check up the day after my husband's check up. Good luck Rosemary and I'll keep you in my prayers.
